Welcome to the new studios!
Summer and autumn classes 2023
Feldenkraisforyou offers more mobility also in summer and autumn 23! In the summer every Wednesday in "Schrittweise", Bennoplatz 6/10 1080 Vienna. We meet as we please. In very small groups we will devote ourselves interactively to several topics relating to our mobility. As always, we will have fun exploring and expanding our range of motion.
From September I will be teaching again in the Pandasatelier in Lindengasse 11/1/2, 1070 Vienna as well as in "Schrittweise", Bennoplatz 6/10 1080 Vienna. There are two attractive, beautiful studios, easily accessible and ideally suited for Feldenkrais. As always, a one-time taster session is possible and encouraged. You can find the dates here. Just Come over! :-).
Enclosed is the review of the lessons of the last course, spring course 2022.
The last class we will comfortably prepare for the summer. See, look, look around..... Freedom in the head and eye coordination. Important for hiking, looking up and watching people and animals and for everything that arouses our interest on vacation. Come by again for a nice slide into midsummer!
This class is performed lying down and standing up. It is called "Head and sholder". We will explore the coordination of our head, eyes as well as our torso. So this is not an advertisement for a shampoo but an effective lesson for improving the cooperation of our sensory center with the torso.
We continue the class with the "Heels under the pelvis - "Rolling into sitting". We will deepen the exploration of the movement of our toes, ankle, knee, hip joints. The mobility will co-activate our backs and relieve tension. Walking and running will become more effortless and functional.
This hour we will take a calmer and more relaxing approach. In light lying movements we will explore the movement possibilities of our chest and neck with light pleasant rotations. A Feldenkrais classic! I have done this lesson many times and each time I discover new possibilities for more ease and freedom from tension.
We continue with "Heels under the Pelvis - Japanese Sitting". This time we go even further east - into the realm of the rising sun! After the last few classes our feeling for the toes has become very big. Ankles, leg muscles, knees and pelvis are in better harmony and we feel greater flexibility. Some more some less but all we feel improvements. Time to think about sitting. The travelling season starts again and who knows, maybe we will go to Japan and sitting for dinner will require some flexibility. No problem, it can be learned in an hour!
We continue with "Heels under the pelvis - The Russian Dancer". So this time it will be Russian! In the movement sequences of this lesson we expand the movement possibilities of our feet and our pelvis. Nothing for softies this time, but an exciting lesson in which we notice how our mobility has improved since the last hour.
We continue with the series called "Heels under the pelvis". In several movement sequences we familiarize ourselves with the movement of our feet. Don't we know the possibilities of moving our feet? Most of the time not really! But after this series very well! And the Achilles tendon, any kind of hallux pain, our knees and our hip joints thank us for that. Incidentally, the calves and thigh muscles also lengthen.

Incidentally, the calves and thigh muscles also lengthen.
This time we will look at leg muscle lengthening. We begin with a series of movements that lengthen the tight muscles of the thighs and lower legs. Our nervous system makes it possible! Without stretching.
Welcome to the first lesson of the spring course. The spring course is specifically dedicated to the topic of lengthening muscles without stretching. Stretching is of course a good tool to "lengthen" "shortened", muscles. However, like a spring, muscles will soon return to their original shape. To achieve lasting change we need to tackle the root. In our brain and nervous system. This is what we will explore with 10 lessons in the spring class.
In this lesson we will begin with improving the mobility of the pelvis. We will explore the rotation of the hip joints - lying on the floor!
